  1. I’d like to say something on behalf of the younger Lafayette generation in terms of long-term sustainability. Besides all else that is stated on this website, this development plan is one of the most short term low profit projects ever in Lafayette. Many of us of Lafayette are raised here and come back because of the beautiful land and safe city. This current generation is not planning for my generation and the ones below me. I currently go to highschool at campo and seeing this plan is clearly impacting much more than adults. I want to come back to the lafayete I was raised in. The green hills and the quiet landscape. Now we’re stuck in traffic and have NO PARKING. But that’s a small part of the huge issue. This project puts problems on our police and fire forces, requires more tax money for schools, roads etc. The supposed money that’s going to be made is going straight to realtors and developers. But this is all known already. Environmentally speaking, this is going to add more pressure on our water supply, our creeks, our hills, and our wildlife. If you want me to speak ever for the younger genrations please feel free to contact me.

  2. The zoning attempt in 2010 for one house per 5 acres is appropriate. That needs to be revisited and made law. Better land exists for adding more new homes if they are needed. As an example, the 23 townhomes at the corner of Pleasant Hill Road and Mount Diablo Boulevard, where Hungry Hunter used to be, produced none of the negatives that will come from Deer Hill.

    Is it possible that that property is the site of a sacred Indian burial ground? Acalanes Ridge is nearby, and the Saclan Indians called this area home before Spanish, Mexican and Anglos moved in.
